raising those taxes on those small businesses wouldat negate anything else that he would want to do. >> mark, this really comes down to whether or not you think raising xes or eliminating those bush tax cuts is going to be worse for or better for the economy. a and again, one of the difficulties we have seen in the campaign, particularly in the last week, is that president obama and people running for election this mid-term are not necessarily on the same page about this. i'm talking about democrats. >> no, they're not, and that's because president obama doesn't play the same in every state and every district acros s the country. rtainly in the more conservative districts, perhs in the south, maybe a little out west, you'll have democrats that will agree with president obama's plan. look, at this point it's almost every man for himself heading into novembe you have democrats who need to get reelected, and if they need to cut the president loose, if they need to criticize him, they're going to criticize him. >> republicans don't have that problem at the moment, mark.
